Description

A special, well thought and organized VIP tour with earliest access before the general public will lead you behind the doors of Catholicism in the most exclusive way, with the comfort of a very small group tour (max 14 people) giving you the rare chance to walk inside with basically no-one around before the big crowd, for a complete different level of visit: a journey made of mesmerizing history, breathtaking masterpieces and mysticism led by our expert in art and religion.

Being the burial place of St Peter Rome, the Vatican has always been considered a holy city – a second Jerusalem, but besides that its museum is a chest of countless masterpieces: the astonishing gallery of statues, the fascinating gallery of maps, the gallery of tapestries and the Raphaels rooms. During your visit to the Vatican Museums you will have the opportunity to learn about the great artists who helped embellish one of the most fascinating sovereign states in the world.

Than prepare yourselves for a Stendhal syndrome effect as you enter the Sistine chapel and lift your head up to the the most-probably most-famous and most-admired ceiling in the world and immerse yourselves into the “last judgment”, the seemingly never-ending fresco magnificently adorned by Michelangelo’s life-like, potent figures of Adam, God and Saints, and try to spot the artist’s self portrait on the torso of Saint Peter!

Here the conclaves of cardinals have come together periodically, throughout the centuries, to elect a new pope, and Pope John Paul II called it the “Holy Spirit’s place of action”.

Such a journey can be accomplished only after another special final visit: the inside of St. Peter’s basilica: admire the incredible mosaics, Michelangelo’s Pietà, and Bernini’s Baldachin in all of their glory, close your eyes and take a deep breath: you are in the center of the most powerful religious power of history, surrounded by masterpiece.

Our tour is a truly special experience; a visit to remember.
